Map of top 10 attractions in Malaga

The typical top ten attractions are listed below. You can find the detailed locations of these places on the maps above.

  • Alcazaba - The remains of this ancient Moorish palace are within easy walking distance of the city center, off the Paseo del Parque. Plenty of signs point the way up the hill. The fortress was erected in the 9th or 10th century, although there have been later additions and reconstructions. Fernando and Isabel stayed here when they reconquered the city. With orange trees and purple bougainvillea making the grounds even more beautiful, the view overlooking the city and the bay is among the most panoramic on the Costa del Sol.
  • Gibralfaro Castle (Castillo de Gibralfaro) - On a hill overlooking Malaga and the Mediterranean are the ruins of an ancient Moorish castle-fortress. The walls are crumbling and the keep is little more than a jungle of ragweed, but the views are spectacular. It is adjacent to the government-run parador and might easily be tied in with a luncheon visit. Warning: Do not walk to Gibralfaro Castle from town. Tourists have reported muggings along the way, and the area around the castle may be dangerous. Take the bus from the cathedral.
  • Contemporary Art Museum (Centro de Arte Contemporáneo CAC de Málaga) - This contemporary arts center lies in a renovated old wholesalers' market and stages the best array of temporary art exhibitions in town, many showcasing the works of international artists such as Alex Katz and Louise Bourgeois. It always has a permanent exhibition. The museum also focuses some of its exhibitions on up-and-coming Spanish artists, and it displays photographic studies in its vast exhibition space. Skip it if you have time only for Museo Picasso Málaga, but try to see it if you can, as Málaga rivals Sevilla as the major cultural center of modern art in southern Spain.
  • Cathedral - This 16th-century Renaissance cathedral in Málaga's center, built on the site of a great mosque, suffered damage during the Spanish Civil War, but its missing bell tower was simply never built. (Work halted in 1782, earning the building the nickname La Manquite, or "the One- Armed Lady") It nonetheless remains vast and impressive, reflecting a basically Gothic architecture with baroque decoration. Its most notable attributes are the richly ornamented choir stalls, which include 40 master wood carvings by Pedro de Mena
  • Pablo Ruiz Picasso Foundation (Fundación Picasso) - A well-told tale concerns the birth of Picasso: In October 1891, when the artist was born, he was unable to draw breath until his uncle blew cigar smoke into his lungs. Whether this rather harsh entry into the world had any effect on his work is mere speculation. What cannot be denied is the effect he was to have on the world. He was born in a five-story building in the heart of Málaga's historic quarter; this is where he spent the first 17 months of his life. Today, the house is both headquarters of the Picasso Foundation and a library for art historians. The Picasso family lived on the second floor, called Casa Natal. The original furnishings are long gone, but you will see a permanent exhibit of Picasso ceramics, sculpture, and engravings, along with a few family artifacts. The museum mounts temporary exhibitions featuring avant-garde works from Picasso's time.
  • Pablo Picasso Museum (Museo Picasso Málaga and Casa Natal de Picasso) - In the Old Quarter a short walk from Picasso's birthplace, this museum displays some of his important works. The museum, which opened in 2003, combines a restored 16th-century Mudéjar palace, Palacio de Buenvista, with a series of Modernist buildings that evoke the Pueblos Blancos in the hills above Málaga. The Spanish dictator Franco detested Picasso, his politics, and his "degenerate art," and refused the artist's offer to send paintings from France to Málaga in the 1950s. (The feeling, by the way, was mutual.) Ultimately, the collection here was made possible by two of Picasso's heirs: his son Paulo's wife, Christine Ruiz-Picasso; and Bernard, Christine and Paulo's son. Many of the artworks are virtual family heirlooms, including paintings depicting one of the artist's wives, such as Olga Kokhlova with Mantilla, or one of his lovers, Jacqueline Seated. Basically, this is the art Picasso gave to his family or else the art he wanted to keep for himself—in all, more than 200 paintings, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, and graphics. Some other notable works on display - many of them never on public view before - include Bust of a Woman with Arms Crossed Behind Her Head, Woman in an Armchair, and The Eyes of the Artist. There is also a memorable painting of Picasso's son, done in 1923.
  • Plaza de Toros de La Malagueta (La Malagueta bullring) - La Malagueta Bullring, which forms a regular 16-sided polygon, houses the Antonio Ordoñez Bullfighting Museum where visitors will find an array of objects relating bullfighting. It is located in Paseo de Reding, in the district of La Malagueta.

What are some interesting facts about Malaga?

Pick up a detailed map at the tourist information centre - The Tourist Office is located in Plaza de la Marina 11. You will be able to pick up large maps covering the city and the surrounding region.

Map orientation & surrounding area - The outstanding feature of the Costa del Sol is its ease of access. Hundreds of flights arrive here every week, and Málaga airport is positioned midway between Málaga, the main city on the coast and Torremolinos resolt.

Getting around with our maps - The best way to get around the crowded city center is to print our maps and travel using the public transport network.

Getting from the airport - From the airport, the electric train (ferrocarril) provides the easiest approach to Málaga (every 30min). The Málaga platform is the one farthest away and reached by an underpass; stay on the train right to the end of the line – the Centro-Alameda stop (12min). Alternatively, city bus #19 leaves from outside the Arrivals hall (every 30min), stopping at the train and bus stations en route to the centre and the Paseo del Parque near the port, from where you can also pick it up in the opposite direction when you're returning to the airport. A taxi into town from the rank outside the Arrivals hall will depending on traffic and time of day take roughly fifteen minutes.

Renfe train station - The city's impressive new RENFE train station is southwest of the heart of town; bus #3 runs from here to the centre every 10min or so. The bus station is just behind the RENFE station, from where all buses (run by a number of different companies) operate. In summer, it's best to arrive an hour or so early for the bus to Granada, since tickets can sell out.
